We visited this location spontaneously. Timing was perfect and we booked the 1 p.m. tour, incl. Mini-Volunteer part (animal feeding). Ou guide Carlos has done a great job and we felt that he loves his job

We took the kids and did the tour and volunteering package, it was perfect. Carlos was really enthusiastic and clearly cared a great deal for the animals and project. The kids learnt a lot and loved feeding the monkeys!
